Triangle Classic Wrap-Up

Posted: Updated:

The 11th annual Triangle Classic was a success, except for the fact that the MSU football team canceled their scrimmage on Saturday due to the weather.

At the banquet on Friday though, many Bobcat fans, coaches and players came together at Montana Expo Park to show their support for Bobcat athletics, including new men's basketball coach Brian Fish and NCAA President, Mark Emmert.

Fish was hired earlier this month as the new men's head coach for Bobcat basketball and said that the support and commitment towards Montana State athletics has been outstanding.

"There's a lot of universities out there, whether it's a big name or not, that don't have this much commitment to one school. You see these people volunteering and the pride they have putting forth to help our student-athletes and provide scholarships for them just melts your heart because these people are doing this for free to help our athletes strive and be successful after college," said Fish.

NCAA President and former Montana State administrator, Mark Emmert, was also in attendance and delivered the keynote speech.

Emmert has been making national headlines which have been initiated by football players from Northwestern University pushing to unionize student-athletes. Emmert opposes unionization, saying it would be detrimental to college athletics.

"To convert a student-athlete into an unionized employee means that everything we know about college sports would change and none of it for the better. As I once said, it's a grossly inappropriate solution to the problems we have. Do we have problems? You bet. Is that the way to do it? No."

As for Bobcat football, they will resume practice on Tuesday and have a make-up practice on Friday since they canceled the Triangle Classic scrimmage at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls on Saturday.
